Rutgers University School of Arts and Sciences Division of Life Sciences


I regularly participate in the following courses at Rutgers:

447:302 Quantitative Biology and Bioinformatics
This is a computer-based laboratory course that introduces students to the use of computers in biological research.  Students learn introductory computer programming and develop applications and analyses for problems in genetics and molecular biology.  I particpate in the four-week module on genetic association analysis.  This course is offered every Spring. Course Syllabus.

681:535 Human Genetics
While this is designed as a graduate course, advanced undergraduates are welcome. This is a foundational graduate course in human genetics, covering classical and non-classical patterns of inheritance, human genome structure and evolution, normal and abnormal processes of gene expression, molecular genetic pathology, laboratory methods for genetic analysis, and research approaches to the study of human genetic disease using humans and model organisms. There will be homework assignments, a midterm and final. Course Syllabus.

Research in Genetics, Honors in Genetics
Undergraduate Genetics Majors interested in my areas of research are welcome to contact me about opportunities to register for Research in Genetics in my laboratory.  Students interested in research should read the Undergraduate Research page of this site. Students accepted for research may also register for Research in Genetics - Writing Intensive: Course Syllabus.
